What I Did At School Today

By

John Mee

After their sell-out performances last year, Monaghan’s Pink Ladies return to the Garage Stage with another great comedy that’s sure to be a smash hit with all proceeds going to DAITHI’S WISH TO WALK FUND, a beautiful 4 year old boy from Stranooden, diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia.  Daithi has recently been eccepted to have a life changing operation.
The Play
Lloyd George Junior and Infants school has had an inspection, and the report's not good
The scheming head is only concerned with sucking up to anyone who’ll enhance his CV, and the all-female staff are either too disgruntled, too lazy or too naive to care
In walks a new supply teacher and everyone suddenly falls over to win his attention
Shocked to find the girl he loved and lost at Uni working there, can he re-kindle the flame?
What could possibly go on in a school staffroom other than meetings, marking and making coffee?

Ger Carey

Ger Carey is back with his hilarious stand-up comedy show for transition year students. By secretly observing his subjects in their natural habitat, such as leaning on lampposts, in chippers, outside chippers, in shopping centres and sitting on any kind of steps, Ger has uncovered the weird and frightening world of the teenager! The aim of the show is to get teenagers to laugh at themselves and appreciate the differences of others. Tickets are only €10 and teachers are free.

Two Sore Legs


By

Brenda Murphy

Set in belfast in the 1950’s and 60’s Two
Sore legs is a powerful, autobiographical
play. Brenda Murphy’s mother Bridie, a
young butlin’s Redcoat, had 6 children by a
married man who lived around the corner
with his other family. The play explores the
pain, the joy and the fall-out from this
extraordinary family arrangement. From
the rowdy, fractious relationship bridie had
with her own father to the explosive but
hilarious visits of the local Parish Priest,
this play drips explicit family emotions.
in an absolute tour de force this is the best
performance you’ll see this year as Maria
Connolly purrs, struts, weeps and explodes
around the stage in equal measure. This
story will stay with you long after you’ve
left the theatre.
